Overview

About the property

Spacious (90m²) and quiet flat with garden terraces and garage

A comfortable flat with a generous lounge 6m x 5m , two bedrooms and the unusual luxury of a small private terrace/garden off every main room. Only 2 minutes walk from the Chateau Rouge metro, and less than 10 minutes on foot to the Sacre Coeur, this flat is a delight to come back to after a long day's sight-seeing around the fabulous city of Paris.

With two three seater-settees with cushions, back support and proper arm-rests, socialising around the coffee table is easy and comfortable.

A third three seater settee in the opposite corner opens up into a double bed if need be and causing no obstruction when can be left open or not, according to the wishes of visitors.

Well separated from living quarters, accessed by small hall, the master bedroom has a double bed and en-suite bathroom with built in wardrobes (full bath, vanity sink, foot bath and WC). The second bedroom has twin beds and built in wardrobes. There is also a separate shower room with vanity sink. Second WC in the main hall.

You may arrive any time between 4pm and 9pm unless a different time has been agreed beforehand. Leaving time is by 11am unless a different arrangement has been mutually agreed.

About Francoise

Retired teacher from college, Grammar School and later, University ( Paris 8)

One daughter married with three sons; Head of IT in a manufacturing industry in Preston (Lancs) Chief governor of a Special School in Blackpool

Francoise purchased this apartment in 1984

Why Francoise chose Goutte d'Or

Loved the local scene, particularly the bright colours under this northern sky.

What makes this apartment unique

Direct access to the outside was terribly important to me as was the fact that, surrounded by private and communal gardens, the flat was free of traffic noise, particularly in the early hours when lorries start delivering.

Beautiful apartment, close to the metro, spacious and comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

I loved my stay! The apartment was lovely, and had everything one could need. It had a charming atmosphere with beautiful terraces. It was very easy to access the metro and was walking distance from many landmarks in Montmartre. I would absolutely return!

Paris Sep 17.

  • 5 of 5

Excellent location, ideal for access to the Metro and for us, within easy walking distance of many of the tourist attractions we wanted to visit. The apartment had everything we needed to support our stay and helped to make the visit a success.

Charming and wonderful flat

  • 5 of 5

We had a tremendous time during our week's stay in Francoise's flat. The rooms are large (by Paris standards) and everything was clean and in good repair. Close to the Metro with ample shopping nearby. I would highly recommend the flat to anyone who wishes to experience Paris as a Parisian does--MUCH better than a hotel and really felt like home.

Communication with Francoise was excellent and she included a lot of very useful information which allowed us to settle in quickly once we arrived.

A great experience and a flat I would happily book again when we return to Paris!

Very comfortable for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

Well kept apartment that had everything we needed. Francoise provided lots of information regarding our stay prior to our arrival and Mrs. Conroux was there to let us in and make sure we had everything we needed. The apartment was a short walk to the tube station, providing easy access to the city center.

Nice enough place, minor problems, not a great area

  • 3 of 5

The place itself was fine - very clean with plenty of space. While the place was clean, it was less than sanitary. There was no soap in either of the bathrooms and we were not given more toilet paper when we needed some. If you decide to stay here, bring your own soap and maybe pick up some extra toilet paper if you can.

Furthermore, the clothes dyer door did not close properly with no attempt from the owners to repair the problem.

The pictures shown describe it accurately, but it was in a sketchy part of town. It was about a 15 minute walk to the top of hill at Montmartre, which is when the area becomes more comfortable for tourists.

Owner's Response: Dear Diane, I am so sorry you were disappointed with your stay in my place. I can well understand your initial anger, when you first arrived, for the 45€ taxi fare and needless hour and a half spent in the cab when in fact, Gare du Nord to my flat ( less than a mile away) usually takes our visitors five to seven minutes and around 8€. It is true that I do not furnish personal toilettries. Nowadays, the majority of people are very particular about the ingredients they will put on their skin and prefer something of their own choosing. I should like to apologise for the fact that there was, after finishing the two on-going toilets rolls + the two spare ones in the cupboard below the washhand basin in the loo + the other two kept in the bathroom , no more spare rolls available. I hope you were able to buy a two-roll pack in the small supermarket opposite our building. In good faith, Mme Conroux thought that she had left enough for 3 people for four nights. Problem with the clothes dryer: you are absolutely right, the handle got broken some time ago. I immediately seized the opportunity to replace it by a more modern combined washer-dryer which you saw next to the dishwasher. I could have removed the old dryer but this would have left a big gaping hole below the eye-level oven as my Italian design kitchen is no longer made and I couldnt buy a matching floor cupboard to fill the gap. When I renew the kitchen completely I will remove it. Getting to the basilica of the Sacre-Coeur built on top of the tallest hill in Paris can be made fairly easily and perhaps more interestingly if you use the itenerary I suggest in my mail prior to arrival, but you are right, it takes about fifteen minutes on foot whichever way. I wish you success with the remainder of your journey and hope Paris may see you again one day!

There are two tube stations (from two different lines) within a hundred yards of the flat. on the way there You'll immediately find yourself in the midst of a throbbing, lively, cosmopolitan crowd offering their wares from Africa or Asia=the area is fast becoming a tourist attraction in itself. Exploring Paris is easy from the 18th arrondissement. A 10 minutes walk and you can watch the painters at work in the famous Place du Tertre in Montmartre, climb the steps to the Sacre Coeur and enjoy the view of Paris, or spend the day trawling the world's largest antiques flea market- le Marche aux Puces.

You can also take your car in the garage below and go and explore the Chateau de Versailles and its historic city around or go and visit Monet's famous house in Giverny, see Eurodysney or shop for luxury goods at 30% or 50% discount in the factory shops of such names as Givenchy, Féraud , Charles Jourdan Dupond e'tc...all regrouped in a big shopping center outside Paris.
